9 QUESTIONS WITH … IAN PULLAN Monarch BeachComber • Winter 2017 • • • The resort has made some major im- provements since your arrival three years ago – how important was that to keep things fresh and keep guests com- ing back? Our guests and members expect the very best. Many of them are incredibly well traveled and compare us to the finest resorts in the world. Our physical transfor- mation allowed us to achieve a wonderful sense of place and firmly establish our- selves as one of the finest beach resorts in North America. • • • What's on the horizon for Monarch Beach Resort? A number of very impact- ful changes to our Miraval Life in Balance Spa and Fitness Center are definitely worth experienc- ing and available by the end of December. Bourbon Steak Restaurant by Michael Mina opens in February 2018 and will be the No. 1 steakhouse in Orange County! We are celebrating our AAA Five Diamond Award for 2018. • • • How would you describe your man- agement style? My role is to ensure our resort and team have a clear vision of who we are and where we are going, to help create a culture that supports our objec- tives and allows us to be the best we can truly be. I am here to support our leaders and associates, ensure we have strong val- ues and an engaging work environment that translates into a wonderful place for our guests to stay and visit. • • • How did you get into the hospitality business? I began my career as a bellman in a small hotel on the west coast of Ire- land, which is where I grew up. I went to hotel school in Galway, Ireland, and have since lived in seven different countries and had the great fortune of working in some wonderful parts of the world such as Ire- land, Hawaii, Bermuda, French West In- dies, Vancouver, France and London. • • • What do you like most about your job? I thoroughly enjoy the variety of my role – every day is different, and I get to spend time with incredible people. Work- ing in hospitality has allowed me to travel the world and experience different cul- tures. I very much enjoy playing an active role in the community.
